Had Firefox 9x or so installed on my mac and then updated to 101. Now tabs go to sleep, unloads. So videos paused and the timer reset, webmail have to login again and again. If saving websites temporary in tabs now can change after article/sites get updated.

Setting "browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory" to false do not work. Tabs still go to sleep with the "ZZZZ". Have tried to restart Firefox and reboot computer.

Tried to install older version of Firefox but then it complain about compatibility with the old "settings files", so have to make a clean install then... Possible to force this? Change what version the "settings files" are so older version of firefox dont complain?

I just restarted Firefox and, much to my distress, the tabs are now as they were on May 27th (I know this because that is the date in one of the tabs). This means some tabs are open that I closed in the last seven weeks, and all the tabs I opened and kept open in the last seven weeks are gone (in this case all my research). The information is there in history but it would take me hours to reopen all the hundreds of research tabs I opened in the last weeks and then close the ones I already closed as I no longer need them.

Why has it done this? How do I keep it from doing this again? And is there a way to force it to open with the tabs I had open just a few hours ago?

Thank you!

This morning, I needed to join a Teams meeting. After I'd clicked the link, I was asked if I would allow Microsoft to use my audio and video; I ticked "Allow". But, when I joined the meeting, I found that I could hear and be heard but I couldn't be seen; my video icon refused to react when I tried to get it open. It was only when I came in through Edge that I could be both heard and seen. Is there any way I can get into a Teams meeting through Firefox? (I have downloaded Teams on to my desk top.) Steve

When I open a new tab, I'd like Firefox to show pages that I've saved to Pocket.

I have selected Settings >> Home >> Firefox Home Content >> Recent Activity >> "Pages Saved to Pocket".

This worked pretty well! So well that I upgraded to Pocket premium! Unfortunately, I no longer see any of the pages I've saved to pocket.

How can I get my saved pages back? Thanks!

MacOS FF dev edition 102 When I roll my mouse over a link, in pops up the URL in the bottom left (i.e. status bar as safari calls it) but there's no indication of if the link will show in the current tab or a new tab. in safari, the end of the URL states "in new tab" if that's the case.

FFox 101.0.1 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 20.3

Just installed the latest Mint (clean install) and the latest FFox.

FFox tabs are arranged along the bottom of the window! Tabs only appear below the bookmarks panel on the left. On the right, the browser panel is atop the tabs, so the tabs can't be seen. New tabs can't be seen. There appears to be no setting to control top/bottom tab placement -- of course, I want tabs across the top and visible, please. Help!

Also, above "Preferences" > "General" (about:preferences#general), there's an info box that says "Your browser is being managed by your organization". Help!


Regards, Mark.

I can have a youtube video on two tabs, but I cant play both of them. I want to do this because I want to play "1 hour of silence occasionally broken up by AUUGHHH" to jumpscare myself randomly while watching another youtube video because I am a masochist. Whenever I play a video on one tab and go to the other and play that one, the other one pauses. Please help me satisfy my masochistic desires. Thanks in advance :)
